    Discovered this morning that our 5 mo old EE had a bad eye. It was closed and wet looking. The feathers around her eye were kind of matted, and it looked slightly goopy. She did eventually open her eye, and it looked fine other than maybe being a little more wet-looking than the other side. Anyone know what this could be or what we should do?

    Yes! If you find anything let me know! LOL! I looked on here too, but didn't really find too much.

    Got some Duramycin 10 today for this eye problem as it doesn't seem to be getting any better. Question is should I isolate her and just give it to the bird with the problem, or give it to all of them? They have been in the same coop, but the other two (only have three total) aren't having a problem. The one with the watery eye is about 5 months old, the other two are closer to 1 yr. Thoughts?
